Tulum mayor kicks off start to 10.6 million peso remodel project

Tulum, Q.R. — A 10 million peso remodeling project for the city of Tulum has begun. Tulum mayor, Marciano Dzul Caamal, announced the start of the project that will see the modernization of Coba Sur Avenue, one of the main entry roads into the municipality.

“For me, this project is one of the most important that we will do to dignify the roads of Tulum. The road of Cobá unites us with tourists and our work as hosts of paradise in the Riviera Maya, therefore, with the support of our council, we decided to mix resources and achieve it in the best way we could.

“I ask for your understanding for the inconvenience that the work may cause. Everything is for your benefit. I also tell you that we are in talks with the Federal Government to be integrated into the planning of the National Park project in order to improve the dignity of Tulum,” he said during a speech at the start of the project.

Caamal reported that the total cost will be just over 10.6 million peso, which he says, is a long-standing request of the local residents. The funds being used are equally from the Contribution Fund for the Municipal Social Infrastructure and the Demarcations of the Federal District (FISM-DF) and from the Participations to Federal Entities and Municipalities.

The remodel will include new pavement, medians and paint and is expected to be complete in October.
